Tribute to Tom Magliozzi of Car Talk
FT3'ers I know many of you have your car (no not "Your" car NoCar) radio tuned to NPR on your drive back from the trail head on Sundays. I certainly do and over the years have really enjoyed the banter and laughter of Tom and Ray, "Click and Clack the Tappet Brothers" of NPR's Car Talk.
With Tom's passing yesterday, this marks the end of a truly creative and unique radio show that many people have enjoyed for years. At times, the show reminded me of some of you and how much we all laugh at the stupidest things and how much we enjoy trying to make each other laugh. I know that my whole family enjoyed Car Talk and Tom's infectious laugh.
As we did in the past with the passing of another unique and creative showman, Huell Howser; I'd like to dedicate tonight's ride to Tom Magliozzi and enjoy a good laugh and a great ride.
And, don't forget to vote, bring a single speed and bring your lights.
First ride of light change, first ride of the month and it is voting day.
